Ancient cultures loved moonstone and associated it with the moon in much the same way we do today. Romans theorized that moonstone - with its unearthly shimmer - was formed from frozen moonlight. Both the Greeks and the Romans associated moonstone with their lunar deities, the goddesses Selene and Diana respectively.
In more recent history, moonstone saw a renewal in popularity during the Art Nouveau period; French goldsmith René Lalique and many others created a large quantity of jewelry using this stone.
The museum's moonstones are source in India and Sri Lanka, and handcrafted into the designs shown here.
